Join us to install signs along a lovely hike through the Western Spring Mountains in Lovell Canyon on Saturday, September 17!
Difficulty: Moderately Strenuous! Lovell Canyon Loop is approximately 6-miles long and gains about 500 feet of elevation in the first 3 miles before climbing back down during the second 3 miles.
Elevation: 5,958 feet to 6,459 feet. Lovell Canyon Loop gains 501 feet in elevation in 3 miles. That is equivalent to an average 3% grade. It is highly recommended that you are familiar and comfortable with high altitude hiking in mountainous terrain to join this project.
Project: Installation of trail signs along route. Volunteers will carry their packs, water, Personal Protective Equipment, and Friends of Nevada Wilderness tools from trailhead to trailhead at an average 6,200 feet elevation, 6 miles roundtrip to install several wooden Forest Service trail signs.
Join us on Saturday, September 17 at 7:45 am for an all-day stewardship project in the beautiful western slopes of the Spring Mountains. We will hike this rolling loop trail among the pines and juniper to re-sign the trail while carrying tools required to drill, post, and oil the new signs.
Expect to hike approximately 6 miles roundtrip carrying your day pack, PPE provided by Friends, at least 2 liters of drinking water, lunch, snacks, and at least one tool provided by Friends of Nevada Wilderness - sign, hardware, drill, etc.
This project will focus on re-signing the Lovell Trail corridor, which has several smaller loop trails incorporated into the overall system of trails in this portion of Lovell Canyon and is funded by the Great American Outdoors Act.
